[movies]Proton Aurora - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
This animation shows a magnetic reconnection event with proton aurora data from the IMAGE spacecraft. Note: Proton aurora animation Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: Cluster, IMAGE.
Keywords: Aurora, Magnetic Reconnection

[movies]Auroral Elements - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Electrons rain down from the Earth's radiation belts, exciting atoms into radiative states along the way. Note: Electrons collide with atoms sending them into radiative states. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Scientist: Nicola Fox (Johns Hopkins University/APL), Art Poland (NASA/GSFC).
Keywords: Aurora; Where -- Poland

[movies]IMAGE and Cluster View Magnetic Reconnection - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
The IMAGE and Cluster spacecraft were ideally positioned in their orbits to view the reconnection event which led to the proton aurora formation. Note: Movie showing IMAGE and Cluster in position for the event. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: Cluster.
Keywords: Aurora, Magnetic Reconnection, Space science

[movies]Proton Aurora Forms from Reconnection Event - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Solar wind protons can breach the Earth's magnetic field through a magnetic reconnection event. Sometimes when this happens we see a (proton) aurora when the solar protons make it to the Earth's atmosphere. Note: Movie of solar protons breaching the magnetic shield through the reconnection event. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI).

[movies]Magnetic Reconnection 2 - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
This is an update to an older magnetic reconnection animation (10072). The ionized wind from the Sun generates reconnection in the Earth's magnetic field. Particles leak in from the rediation belts producing the auroras. Note: 3-D Anaglyph Reconnection animation Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Scientist: Nicola Fox (Johns Hopkins University/APL).
Keywords: Aurora, Magnetic Fields, Magnetosphere; What -- Sun

[movies]Earth's Magnetic Field to Aurora - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
Join a ride with electrons along the Earth's magnetic field line to the formation site of the aurora. Note: View of the Earth's geomagnetic field and following the electrons down to the aurora formation. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: 3D Unstructured-mesh Magnetosphere Simulation.

[movies]THEMIS Sees Magnetic Reconnection - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
THEMIS observations confirm for the first time that magnetic reconnection in the magnetotail triggers the onset of substorms. Substorms are the sudden violent eruptions of space weather that release solar energy trapped in the Earth's magnetic field. Note: THEMIS reconnection animation Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Scientist: Vassilis Angelopoulos (University of California, Berkeley). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: THEMIS.

[movies]THEMIS Launch and Deployment - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, Conceptual Image Lab
THEMIS (Time History of Events and Microscale Interactions durind Substorms) answers fundamental outstanding questions regarding the magnetospheric substorm instability, a dominant mechanism of transport and explosive release of solar wind energy within Geospace. THEMIS will elucidate which magnetotail process is responsible for substorm onset at the region where substorm auroras map (~10Re): (i) a local disruption of the plasma sheet current or (ii) that current's interaction with the rapid inf...

[movies]Substorms - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center- Conceptual Image Lab
This animation shows a magnetospheric substorm, during which the reconnection causes energy to be rapidly released along the field lines causing the auroras to brighten. Note: Earth's magnetic field lines including plasma. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI).
Keywords: Aurora, HDTV, Magnetic Reconnection, Solar Wind, Space Weather, THEMIS; What -- THEMIS

[movies]A CME Generates Reconnection in Earth's Magnetic Field - NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Conceptual Image Lab
A burst of fast material from the Sun generates magnetic reconnection events in the Earth's magnetic field. This eventually sends high-speed electrons and protons into the Earth's upper atmosphere to form aurora. Note: View the impact of a coronal mass ejection against the Earth's magnetic field. Animator: Walt Feimer (HTSI). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: 3D Unstructured-mesh Magnetosphere Simulation.
Keywords: Aurora, Coronal Mass Ejection, Electron, Geomagnetic Field, Magnetic Fields, Magnetosphere, Space science, Sun; What -- FAST; What -- Sun
